About this submission

By making this film, I was exploring my fear of commitment in relationships. My thesis was: how can a person make a life commitment to someone else before really getting to know them? My mother once told me that if I wanted to get to know my partner, we would need to experience a stressful situation together. I took that a step further and asked "what if that situation was life or death?" I married this story with my love of b-movies and genre filmmaking. Particularly the horrific 16mm beauty of titles such as The Last House on the Left.
